Figuring Out If It’s Time for AC Repair or Replacement05/26/2016 It can be a tough decision, determining if your air conditioner demands repair or if it’s time to swap out your entire system. The expenses from continuous repairs can really accumulate, but purchasing a new air conditioner system can also be a big venture. So, before you choose either route, there are a few things to consider to be certain that it’s time to stop fixing and start replacing: How often does your system break down? If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start looking into a replacement system. An AC created today will be highly energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fret about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer days. Does your home feel uncomfortable? This is something that you should know how to note right away. If your house cannot stay at a constant and comfy temperature, your air conditioner is either the wrong size for your home, in need of repair, or up for a replacement. How old if your system? If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last lap. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A giant increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to try harder and that requires more energy. How high are your energy bills?
